I recently asked myself what message I would want to leave to the world if I could write only one more post. This is what came to me:
Spend more time by yourself, in silence, close to nature.
Be thankful for what you have.
Search for answers to your deepest questions.
Do your best to treat everyone with respect.
Don’t get attached to objects, status, or traditions. All these can be lost. Regard what cannot be lost as the most important: the spirit.
Take care of yourself. You’ll feel better and be more useful. Sleep, eat moderately, and exercise.
Be present. Return to your breath often.
Make your life a living prayer. Have an underlying trust that God will lead you and that you have nothing to worry about.
Return to these words when you feel disconnected.
